HUE Smart Switch ROM001 no longer work in version 2.19.01


I updated today from version 2.17.01 to 2.19.01 and noticed that the HUE Smart Switch is no longer working.

First test was with HA. In the Events window I can’t see events generated from the Switch (I’ve 3 at home and none work now). Then I open the Raspbian deCONZ and the Node is there as always. When I click on the button I see the light flashing and in the Cluster Info about Action Notification I see the press and release are identified correctly.

Second test was using the Phoscon Gateway. I assigned a group of lights to the HUE switch. After that, the button does not toggle the group of lights. If I remove that switch and link it with an Ikea switch it works and I can see the events in HA

Third point: I notice there are changes about the HUE switch between versions 2.17.01 and 2.19.01. They are related with DDF files and also one “removing old code…” hmm…

If I debug HTTP I can’t see messages related with the button.

So, my conclusion is that this is something related with producing the event for the web socket.

Using the REST API I see the following:

        "22": {
            "config": {
                "battery": 68,
                "group": "13",
                "on": true,
                "reachable": true
            "ep": 1,
            "etag": "638fe0e84ece4416a9f910759764a3fa",
            "lastannounced": "2022-10-04T12:40:47Z",
            "lastseen": "2022-11-04T21:04Z",
            "manufacturername": "Philips",
            "mode": 1,
            "modelid": "ROM001",
            "name": "Mesilla noche Papá on/off",
            "state": {
                "buttonevent": 1002,
                "lastupdated": "2022-11-04T06:59:53.868"
            "swversion": "2.30.0_r30777",
            "type": "ZHASwitch",
            "uniqueid": "00:17:88:01:08:93:05:19-01-fc00"

Note the values for lastupdated that corresponds to yesterday night, No more events are fired? Also lastannounced value corresponds with the moment the deCONZ software was updated and lastseen is the last moment I pressed the button.

Final notice, I downgraded to version 2.17.01 and now the HUE Switch works again.

Hope this information helps!
